Diamonds are so pretty,
Rubies are so red
My baby's gone and left me,
She's made another's bed
I can't believe this misery,
Sneaks up on you real slow
If she's the one in trouble
Why's it me that has to go

I don't want to leave this town
I'm not the one to blame
Leaving all my friends behind
In sorrow and shame

I thought that we were happy,
I thought our love was true
A better life you couldn't find
Speak on like lovers do
Taken by the devil
To another man's arms
Held captive by his richness
And shackled by his charms

I don't want to leave this town
I don't want to know
Leaving all my friends behind
I don't want to go

I can't pretend, love's lost again
And I don't know what I'm gonna do
It's just breakin' my heart in two

Oh, I don't want to leave this town
I'm not the one to blame
Leaving all my friends behind
In sorrow and shame

I can't pretend, love's lost again
And I don't know what I'm gonna do
It's just breakin' my heart in two

No, I don't want to leave this town
I don't want to go
Leaving all my friends behind
I don't want to know

I don't want to leave this town
I don't want to know
Leaving all my friends behind
I don't want to go
